drank Marco Polo by Mariage Frères
1856 tasting notes

Hubby is off and home for lunch today, so I let him pick the tea! This is one of his favorites. He took his with milk and sugar.

The first time I tried Marco Polo I didn’t care for it. (Gasp! I know, right?). Then I read to try it with milk and sugar to bring out the strawberries and cream notes. Delicious! But my tastes have changed a lot, so I wanted to see if I like it sans additions now. I did! It was extremely smooth. One thing that was strange to me…I hadn’t picked up floral notes before and today this was very, very rosy! I had several cups and enjoyed it very much just as it was.

I am trying hard to be good and wait for my friend to come over so we can try Jenn’s honeybush teas together, but I think I am going to cave and go ahead and start tasting them tonight. The names make your mouth water!

I’ve noticed the flip flopping floral/lack of floral here to! I think maybe it depends on the distribution within the leaves… but then I’m probably talking outta my butt here :P

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
